Originated from ancestor Ajamīḍha (अजमीढ़).
V. S. Agrawala writes that Ashtadhyayi of Panini mentions janapada Ajamīḍha (अजमीढ़) and Ajakranda - Here prefix Aja is deity Asura Ajaka with whom king Shalva was identified as its incarnation. (Adiparva, 61.17)
According to James Todd Hastin sent forth three grand branches, Ajamidha, Dvimidha, and Purumidha. Of the two last we lose sight altogether ; but Ajamidha's progeny spread over all the northern parts of India, in the Panjab and across the Indus.
